Swimming the Channel.

This weekend I finished knitting what may possibly be my favorite knitted sweater to date! There is just nothing like picking a luxury yarn, in a color you love, and ending up with a garment that fits and flatters. I wish every sweater journey could end this way, but I’m very happy when it happens.

The Pattern: Channel by Yelena Malcom

The Needles: US 5’s

The Yarn: Squoosh, Merino Cashmere Nylon, Colorway Tsunami

The Verdict: I already proclaimed my love for this. I wanted to call the garment Tsunami (after the colorway) but cast on immediately after the tsunami happened in Japan, so instead I went with swimming the channel.  My favorite parts of this sweater are the wonderful rounded neckline, and the swirls detailing the bottom which flatter the waist.  The yarn was absolute luxury – the cashmere makes the yarn so unbelieveably soft. And of course it’s my favorite color.  I will almost certainly use this pattern again!
